Will using dark primer make the paint look darker. I have a 84 mustang and was painted red by the previous owner,I can reach the owner to find out what paint and color was use. I have been to Napa ,Sherwin Williams , and Auto Body supply.Napa and auto body used a spectometer to find out the color combo.Neither one can out good and was too dark.
Any suggestion what to do. Can a good body shop mix their own paint to match. I only have the front fender to paint. I was thinking if I got a brighter color paint and then use a dark primer.to tone it down.
